Merry Stocking Tag


Hi everyone.  Last night my son popped by with a surprise.  I had ordered some items from Joann's and he had gone down to the US mailbox and picked them up for me.  Isn't he sweet??!! :)

So I HAD to make a card today using one of my new "toys".  I saw that the challenge this week at Merry Monday was to make a card with a tag.




And I thought this stocking would fit perfectly on a tag ... and it did. :)  I stamped it, coloured it with Copics and fussy-cut.  It's popped up on a "falling snow" embossed, stitched tag.  I stamped the sentiment onto a small scrap of card stock and added it at the bottom.  Since I used a scrap, I'm going to head over to the Snippets Playground and join the fun! :)

I kept this CAS by just having the tag and image.  I did add a little wink of stella to the ribbon and holly, which doesn't show in the photo above.  I'll include a close up below so you can see a bit of the sparkle.




We've been having the BEST weather the past few days.  Sunny, warm, breezy ... just perfect.  I actually went out and watered the front yard today. :)  I need to get moving more.  As some of you know, I had knee surgery back in January, after taking a spill and tearing my quadracept tendon.  Rehab is going well, but I'm still a little a bit scared about walking around outside where there is uneven ground.  I need to get over that. :)

Paper:  White (Neenah)
Ink:  Black (Memento); Gumball Green (SU!); Copics

  15. What a sweetheart of a son you have Loll! Your card is fabulous and I am in love with that sweet stocking. Love the shimmer and sparkle that wink of stella gives and of course I love the CAS design. I am glad you are having great weather, we are too-but it got pretty hot today and will be again tomorrow. That's ok though because after the cold hard winter I'm not going to complain! lol I don't blame you for being gun shy about walking on the uneven ground and yes they say to get right back up on the horse again. BUT...that is easier said than done. Just take it slow and careful! Hugs, Brenda
